I picked myself up a new foam roller tonight (my other one had gotten too soft). She’s little, and cute, and going to help me fight IT Band Pain from hell.
If you have no idea what this pink-foam-thingy ( I’m-showing-the-love-to, jealous?) is, consider yourself lucky, and if you don’t know what IT Band Pain is, consider yourself luckier.
I feel it brewing in my left knee, which means, once again, I’m rolling my thighs every night (oh the life of a marathoner…*).
Last summer I spent two months going to physio twice a week to help with the pain (I got it so badly, I could hardly walk), but at the end of the day… the *only* thing I found that helped was the foam roller!
*see what I did there? I called myself a marathoner(!!)
